Bottled. Hazy nutbrown colour, mediumsized beige creamy head. Aroma is fruits, honey blueberries/raspberries/strawberries and some slight yeast. Flavour is leather, yeast, a lot of spices and some caramel malts. A rather twisted brew, but at the same time very pleasant. omhper (25108) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 29, 2008
Bottled at the Struise farm. Hazy pale golden, airy head. Almondy and caramelly. Surprisingly slim for a beer this size with notes of grass and pear. Fruity with notes of canteloupe. Late resiny bitterness. An extremely drinkable 11% beer! Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 17, 2007
(Bottle 33 cl) Pours a very unclear, dark amber with a lively, off-white head leaving laces. Sweetish aroma of caramel, fruit and some yeast. Quite full-bodied with lots of fruit and diacetyl. A rather bitter finish - unusual for Belgium but not for Alvinne. 150107 madmitch76 (24791) - , Essex, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2012

Cloudy brown beer. Semi dry and semi crisp palate. Low carbonation. Tart and a little sour. Orange, lemon sherbet well integrated with rich malt. Finishes with more sour lemon and orange. Refreshing. Hides the abv very well.
Bottle sample poured by Glenn at the brewery - thanks Glenn!
Amber/orange color with a large white head that settles quickly to tiny bubbles with great lacing.
Aroma is very subtle, mainly just light malts and yeast, not much hops evident.
Bitterness and hops come through in he mouth, nice malt, well-balanced.
Definitely a nice double IPA or barleywine, even without the oak.
